Global ePharmacy Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global ePharmacy Market (Online Pharmacy Market) is estimated to grow to USD 107.5 billion by 2027 from USD 49.43 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 16.81% between 2022 to 2027. Increasing the prevalence of the internet of things worldwide and the growing use of smartphones and tablets are the key factors driving the global online pharmacy market demand.

An ePharmacy is an online pharmacy that operates online and provides medicines to consumers through mail or shipping companies. ePharmacy is also known as an online pharmacy, internet pharmacy, and mail-order pharmacy. In recent times, one of the progressive technologies in the Healthcare industry is Telemedicine, which has provided a way for people to get healthcare advice through IT. Many technological advances help increase price transparency, raise awareness, find appropriate health service providers, provide reminders of medicines, and inform consumers about pregnancy. Like telemedicine, ePharmacy is another technological innovation that has become a problem solver for delivering contactless medicine during pandemic days. The demand for ePharmacy has significantly increased recently, and the steak is forecasted to continue during the forecast period.

The adoption of online pharmacies is growing significantly worldwide due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, boosting the growth rate of the ePharmacy market.

Online Pharmacy will be the next huge innovation that will impact billions of lives and make a healthy behavioral change safer and more convenient tomorrow. It is one of the technological innovations that has positioned itself as an attractive model in the online healthcare sector, which is expected to generate huge demand in the future.

The online pharmacy sector is experiencing healthy growth during the Covid-19 pandemic, boosted by lockdown restrictions. In addition, social distancing is a driving factor for over-the-counter and prescription drug purchases over the Internet. A global professional services firm EY report shows that India's potential e-pharmacies market will rise to $18.1 billion (Dh66.4 billion) by 2023 compared to $9.3 billion in 2019. According to Adobe’s analysis, 200% increase in Google Search volumes for COVID-19-related health products.

High unmet needs in emerging economies and growing penetration of e-commerce worldwide are majorly accelerating the global online pharmacy market growth.

The growth of the ePharmacy market is further driven by the rising number of Internet consumers, increased access to web-based and online services, and an increase in the implementation of e-prescriptions in hospitals and other healthcare services. The growing scope of e-commerce has made it easy for e-Pharmacy to capture a large customer base in developed and developing countries. This generation relies heavily on the online supply of products such as cosmetics and medicines without a prescription. Furthermore, due to the advent of new information technologies and algorithms, various start-ups worldwide provide a better experience and consumer satisfaction. It is believed that new technologies based on artificial intelligence will ensure better customer satisfaction in the market. All these factors are escalating the growth of the global ePharmacy market.

Rising incidences of chronic diseases and increasing awareness of online pharmacies are to surge growth opportunities for the global ePharmacy market. Furthermore, the market is propelled by the implementation of e-prescription, which is an easy and convenient process for pharmaceutical companies. In addition, government agencies' efforts to reach regulatory agreements and ethical practices in e-pharmacy in some major dynamic regional markets are expected to open lucrative business opportunities for the companies operating in the global ePharmacy market.

Y-O-Y rise in fraud activities is slightly hampering the growth of the ePharmacy market.

Security and privacy concerns among people have remained challenging for the online pharmacy market. There are strict regulations for the sale of prescription drugs through online channels. Sales of prescription drugs through the electronics industry in North America and Europe are highly regulated. Companies must comply with various rules that could impact ePharmacy Market development in these areas. Besides, not all countries have legalized the sale of prescription drugs through websites. It is believed that factors such as the unregulated sale of prescription drugs that could lead to online drug bans will lead to lower revenue in the world ePharmacy Market. Possible confidentiality, improper packaging, and failure to verify drug interactions are other significant challenges that can slow the growth of the online pharmacy market.
